Joe Venuti & Eddie Lang-Black and Blue Bottom


Published September 26, 1929


Recorded on September 26, 1929 in New York City. Joe Venuti was born on a ship on the way to the USA from Italy and became, in many circles, THE great jazz violinist. Eddie Lang (who was also known as Blind Willie Dunn) was a boyhood friend of Venuti, and was the first great jazz guitarist. Lang died in 1933 as the result of a botched tonsillectomy, which operation had been taken at the urging of his friend, Bing Crosby.

Fascinating strings here, strummed and bowed, with that early rapid beat and a very nice clarity of sound.

These guys are wonderful. Look for Eddie Lang's recordings (as Blind Willie Dunn) with Lonnie Johnson, too. They're about as good as music gets.
